Word 5.00: Color Printer Output

PSS ID Number: Q36521 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




In Word version 5.00, printed color is specified as a separate character attribute rather than as a different font. This is a change from Word version 4.00.

Printer drivers that support color include special color selection sequences. A “font color:” field has been added to the Format Character menu, and will list the available colors based on the printer and printer model selected in the Print Options menu. For black and white printers, the only color listed will be black.

Color will appear on the printout only and will not be displayed on the screen. To change screen text colors, press F1 while in the “colors:” field of the Options menu.
